Morphic Fields

In biology a morphogenetic field is a group of cells that leads to a specific body structure of organs. For example the liver field becomes liver tissue. Scientist Rupert Sheldrake in the early 1980s was the first to label a learning field that instructs the scientifically recognized ones calling them the energetic morphic fields.

Sheldrake suggested in his own research on plant development that the understanding of the development of plants and their gene expression as well as their morphogenesis were not enough and that morphogenesis depended on “organizing fields”. He stated that the same arguments applied to animals as well.

He suggested that that morphogenetic fields worked by imposing patterns on otherwise random or indeterminate patterns of activity. This theory would portray DNA as the recipient of information from morphic fields, which instructs it to act in certain ways. Turning on and off epigenetic signals of the genes via morphic fields.

According to Richard Gerber over decades, biologists are still unable to explain exactly how the cells of the embryo actually do find their final resting places in the appropriate parts of the “finished” body. Although molecular biologists have been able to figure out how our genetic code instructs primitive fetal cells to develop into muscle, tissue and bone cells, they have never fully explained how each cell gets to its “correct” location in the body. Dr. Gerber attributes this order to an etheric template or body which I partially agree but at the same I think that it is this morphogenetic field instructing the DNA via epigenetic control telling the proteins of the cells how to develop and where to go.

According to sheldrake the fields organizing the activity of the body are likewise inherited through morphic resonance, conveying a collective, instinctive memory. Then each individual both draws upon and contributes to the collective memory of the species. And what this means is that new patterns of behavior can spread more rapidly than would otherwise be possible.

In this case Sheldrake’s morphogenetic theory seeks to explain why members of a family pass down certain behaviors and even emotions and why species might share common characteristics and developmental patterns. Various studies have also shown that even when separated, members of certain species acquire similar traits or behaviors. What we call the 100th monkey effect. A monkey in Cambodia can learn to break a coconut to get the water that is inside of it and a monkey from the same breed can learn the same thing faster in Brazil via morphogenetic fields.

Amazing right? In my opinion according to this theory we as a human race can help each other out by helping ourselves. All the useful knowledge, skills and even healthy habits can be passed on to other humans via morphic fields, if a person starts to awaken and empower themselves in Toronto that same effect can be passed on to someone living in Tokyo!!

In a few words to close this post when you start to help and empower yourself you are actually helping the collective do the same thing!! Thats how powerful we all are. So are you going to start helping people by helping yourself?
